Description

research germany list real estate investors switzerland

The Swiss real estate market is booming. As in other countries, low interest rates, a lack of investment alternatives and steadily rising demand are leading to a dynamic increase in real estate prices. It is becoming increasingly difficult for private individuals – even high earners – to afford a home in neighbouring Germany. Switzerland’s attractive real estate market also attracts the attention of real estate investors, who play a significant role. With our exclusive list of the top 100 Real Estate Investors in Switzerland, we offer you a comprehensive overview of the largest investors, co-investors and buyers in the Swiss real estate industry.

Database of Switzerland’s Largest Real Estate Investors

Our unique database of the largest Swiss real estate investors, downloadable as an Excel file, is a unique product. The list with a variety of data points helps to identify and target buyers for properties of different sizes and asset classes. In addition, our Swiss database is a good starting point for finding and approaching new customers in the real estate sector. The list mainly contains domestic investors in Switzerland, but also investors from abroad (with interest in Swiss properties / existing properties in Switzerland).

Our lists of real estate investors are designed to help our clients sell real estate and real estate projects or acquire new clients in the real estate sector. For this reason, the lists contain basic information such as name, contact details and managing director data, as well as many other data points. On the one hand, we report in detail on the purchasing profile of the investors: in what asset classes are they investing? Where is the geographical focus? How wealthy are the investors? In order to estimate the size of the real estate investors, there is the key figure assets and management / investment volume. Therefore we have included an internal ranking from A to E to help you to assess the investors.

Investments in various asset classes in Switzerland: residential, office, retail, logistics, health

The investors in our database are active in the entire spectrum of possible asset classes in the real estate sector. The most common investments are residential and office properties. The investment focus of the various companies differs greatly. Some specialize in luxury residential portfolios in Zurich’s A-locations, while others are interested in apartment buildings in B- and C-locations in more rural cantons. There are also big differences in office investments: while some investors are only interested in top buildings in large cities, others are interested in business parks and office buildings in smaller towns. Retail real estate – from supermarkets to shopping centers – is also relevant. Other asset classes shown in the list are logistics and light-industrial real estate as well as healthcare real estate such as medical centres and nursing homes.

The companies included in the list can be found through various sources: Internet research, public registers, analysis of relevant news, investigation of relevant transactions, our extensive personal network. Hundreds of hours of detailed, high-quality research flow into each of our lists. All data points that we can enter via publicly available sources are included in our lists.

Every data point for which there is publicly available information is filled out in our lists. However, if we do not have an e-mail address or we do not know whether a company is investing in a particular area, we fill this field with an “n.a.”. In most cases we achieve a data coverage of over 90%. If you want to know the exact coverage of the list – e.g. how many e-mail addresses are available – our team will be happy to help you.

Our lists are always delivered as handy Excel files. On request we can also send you the list as a CSV file.

After purchasing the list, you can immediately download the list as an Excel file when paying by credit card or PayPal. You will also receive a download link by e-mail. Future free updates will also be sent to you by e-mail.

We have noted the last update date in the product description at the top of the page. We update our lists regularly. Our customers receive free updates and additions to the list for at least 12 months.

Our lists include – if publicly available – address, telephone number, e-mail addresses and management names of the listed companies. For privacy reasons, we may only include information that is publicly available or provided by the companies. If no data points are available, there is an “n.a.” in the corresponding field.

Due to GDPR our lists do not include personal e-mail addresses and telephone numbers. Our lists include publicly available contact data or contact data provided by the companies (e-mail address, telephone number, postal address, names of directors).

Our lists do not include any personal contact data that is specifically protected by the European Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our lists always include publicly accessible data points (official registers such as the Commercial Register or the Federal Gazette, Internet, company websites) or data provided voluntarily by companies.
In Germany, contact is regulated by §7 UWG. Thus, postal advertising in the B2B sector is generally permitted. Contacting by telephone is permitted if the business contact is presumably interested. This is often also assumed for e-mail contact, as long as the contact is made once and the contact is not included in newsletters without being asked.
Important note: We are not lawyers and cannot make legally binding statements. If you have any open questions, please feel free to contact us.

The companies included in the lists can be contacted in various ways – by telephone, postal letter, e-mail, networks such as LinkedIn, jointly attended trade fairs. In order to establish successful contacts, it is particularly important to work on individualized addresses tailored to the respective companies. Mass letters are rarely successful. Instead, our customers are most successful when they adapt to the companies included in our lists, obtain information and then address them in a customized manner. Another successful approach is to contact them via LinkedIn, for example, by selecting the right contact person from our list and then addressing them via a consistent starting point. Intros” that are mediated via shared contacts are also a good step towards establishing contact. Also possible: at trade fairs visited together, you can use the trade fair lists to search specifically for companies included in the lists and make appointments for meetings.
In general: the more effort is put into the individual approach, the more successful it is. Think about what suitable starting points are, how you can deliver added value and show the addressed companies that you put a lot of effort into the contact. Many of our customers have already built up valuable and successful business relationships.
